Daily Prompt: The New School

You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

My school would be a selective school where there would have a maximum of 20 students in each class and I would separate hard-working people and lazy students.

The concept is easy to understand. Each student would choose in which subjects they want to go, in History, then Maths,and English, and if you hate P.E. , you are not obliged to go and have this lesson.

In this school, you only must have the Science and Languages lessons. All the teachers are great and kind and they must teach you well. The students could give marks their teachers so they can give their advice to the ones concerned.

That would be a great school for me, the school of my dreams !

Daily Prompt: The Guilt that Haunts Me

Share a time when you were overcome with guilt. What were the circumstances? How did you overcome you guilt?

The last time I was overcome with guilt was a few months ago, maybe one or two months.

As you know, I’m a caring big sister who must look after her little sister. So, this day,  I was waiting for her, but after 10 minutes, she wasn’t here, I asked some people but they didn’t see her.

I panicked and searched all around the school yard, and then I thought that if she were here, I’d have saw her, and that she had forgiven to wait for me.

Then, I tried to reassure me, she would have the reflex to go back home and I left the school.

I worried all along the  way home, and when I opened the door, she was here, playing on the computer.

We explained ourselves , she just told me she believed that I had forgiven her, she left the school and then I thought she didn’t wait for me.

The whole story is based on a misunderstanding !

There were more fear than harm.

 

Daily Prompt : First !

Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever. 

My first day at college was an exceptional day. In fact, I woke up, I went to school, and the students of 6th year had to wait for the headmaster. We were each with our parents, waiting, nervous, when the headmaster appeared.

He was so impressive, with his pot belly, and when he started to talk, we heard a really big voice that told us to have a great year, not to do too much foolishness and so on.

Then, the headteachers called each student in the alphabetical order. I was called to go with the 6B’s students. In this class,we were 17. Our headteacher, led us in the class, and invited our parents to come for a few minutes.

The headteacher introduced himself, talked us about things I don’t remember and the parents left.

I just didn’t understand that he was our headteacher, my parents explained it to me the same evening.

At midday, we went to the canteen, the afternoon, we visited the school, and that was at this time I really started to look at the other students.

That was a great first day, I think I won’t forget it.

Daily life at school !

Let’s start ! In this second post, I’m going to explain you my school life.

My school, wich you can see on the photo below, is called Saint Stanislas.

ImageThis is my school !

We have some beautiful and ancient buildings !

Now, I think it is time to tell you that I learn chinese ! Chinese 🙂 ! In fact, this is a very beautiful language, and I learn it since the 6th class. For the people who want to learn this language, they must be really interested and ready to make efforts, because it is a very different language,  and the writing is like this :

The letters below are called “pinyin”, you write it when you don’t know how to write it in chinese character.

But enough about chinese ! In France, in the 8th class, we have to chose another language, and, unfortunately, I choose german, but now, I hate this language ! I have already dreamed that I went to the spanish lesson !

At school we learn those subjects:

  • -French: of course, I am French 🙂
  • -Maths : I like it, it depend on the subject
  • English : Love it 🙂
  • Plastic Arts: good teacher !
  • Music : we can sing !
  • German : i hate it !
  • History-geography : I am so great !
  • Chinese : we are about 7 to learn this lovely language !
  • Physic : A new teacher !  (I got the same 2 years !)
  • Biologie : the same teacher I got in the 7th class
  • P.E. : 2 differents teachers in 4 years !

That’s all I can say now ! So goodbye and see you later, aligator !
